Gustav Klimt⁣ The Park⁣ 1910 or earlier⁣ “In this painting Klimt shows us an extremly fragmentary view of the Schlosspark of Kammer on Lake Attersee. This is the most abstract painting Klimt ever accomplished. Only the tree trunks in the lower part of the painting give us the hint that the green mosaic above are the tree crowns.”⁣ “Pointillism clearly influenced this painting, even though, unlike Seurat, Klimt never expressed an interest in utilizing optics in his work. Nine-tenths of The Park is a solid mass of foliage, thus if not for the tree trunks and strips of grass at the bottom, this composition would be wholly abstract. The painting's naturalistic elements are offset by Klimt's decorative mosaic of blue, green and yellow dots, which are rendered representational only with the aid of the work's lower section. This is a visually demanding work, and possibly one of Klimt's finest plein air paintings (although many of his landscapes were finished in the studio, all were begun in the open air). He painted these throughout his career, but to this day they are celebrated far less than his portraits.”⁣ #modernart #20thcenturyart #paintings #painting #artlovers #artists #famousart #artlegends #art #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #artoftheday #artstagram #artofinstagram #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #artlove #artpreciatetheday #gustavklimt #klimt #thepark #klimtthepark #thepark1910
